What IS your geocaching bag?

In answer to the OP, my 'geocaching bag' is the pockets on my clothes. They easily hold the pen & pencil and my Leatherman tool that are the only things I always take with me when caching.

 

My tiny day pack for maybe more than a day (a Hikpro) is only 7 1/2 ounces.  Took it today while playing on the AT a bit,  just for extra water.

Otherwise, everything I need (even a have-to overnighter) fits in my little camera bag and cargo pockets.    :)

This surf-shop backpack by Billabong with its multiple compartments, integrated lunchbox, pencil case and A4-sized document section (good for maps and multi printouts) is what I use for all my caching beyond just P&Gs. It has room for the essentials like water, snacks, insect repellent, first aid kit, PLB and DSLR camera while still being nice and compact.

A small bag - I've been through several. I want 2 water bottle pockets, a detachable shoulder strap, a waist band that will tuck away, and 2 (or more) zippered compartments.  All in something narrow enough that if it's centered on my back, the width doesn't interfere with my arm swing.   Most small packs have shallow untethered water bottle pockets.  I add some elastic coord with lace locks.  Current version (a modified Kelty Oriole) image below. I added the white shock coords for the water bottles and cut off the front shallow useless pocket with brand name. If everything is taken out of this, it just will hold a small ammo can, partially zipped.

On reading a recent post by @Goldenwattlementioning leaches I thought that next time I'm in a fast food joint I should grab a few packs of salt to put in my geocaching bag . Sprinkling salt on leaches causes them to drop off.
